Report: Audi S8 to debut at Frankfurt Motor Show; S6 and S7 to follow in LA

. Friday, June 17, 2011

According to a report published today by AutoBild, Audi is planning to debut the all-new S8, S7 and S6 this fall. AutoBild writes that the S8 will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, featuring (in-line with earlier speculation) a 500 horsepower variant of Audi's new 4.0 TFSI, biturbo V8. The S6 and S7 will also feature the new 4.0 TFSI, boasting between 440 and 470 hp and are slotted to debut at the LA Auto Show in November. More after the jump.

In addition to the S1, S6, S7, and S8, AutoBild also speculates on the future of the next-generation (C7) Audi RS6. According to the report, the new RS6 should begin production in late 2012 and also feature the new biturbo 4.0 TFSI V8, this time pumping out 580 horsepower.

Without any official confirmation from Audi AG, we're still filing this report in the "Rumormill." However, AutoBild's intel is usually pretty trustworthy and this speculation seems very plausible. We hope they're right!
